Joint Heartland Conference Annual Gathering & Disciples Regional Assembly Taking Shape!

The Joint Annual Gathering of the Heartland Conference, UCC and Regional Assembly of the Christian Church in Ohio (Disciples of Christ) is set for Friday, September 27 and Saturday, September 28, 2024.

The event will be in two locations: All events will be held at Northwest Christian Church, 1340 Fishinger Rd., Columbus, OH 43221

Our theme is “Being The Community Of Christ – Together!” and is based on Romans 1:11-12: “For I am longing to see you so that I may share with you some spiritual gift to strengthen you— or rather so that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.”

Our two preachers for the event both represent Global Ministries, our common UCC/DOC ministry around the world. On Friday afternoon we will hear from Dr. Nibedita Pramanik, Director of the Evangelical Mission Hospital Khariar, India. On Saturday Afternoon our preacher will be the Rev. Dr. LaMarco Cable, President of Disciples Overseas Ministries and co-executive of Global Ministries (UCC/DOC).

The Keynote Speaker for the joint event, the Rev. Elizabeth Hagan, is Senior Pastor of First Christian Church of Athens, Georgia and author of “Brave Church: Tackling Tough Topics Together.” Rev. Hagan will those of us gathered to explore ways to stay in community even when we have very different perspectives on faith and the social and political issues confronting us.

There will be two “Musical Reflectors” for the event: Rev. Andra Moran and Rev. Christopher Grundy. Rev. Moran is familiar to Disciples of Christ as she has been musician at many General Assemblies. Both Andra and Christopher have recorded several albums.

Both denominations will have separate meetings to conduct their respect business. Several sessions will allow attendees to network and connect with others around like-minded ministries as well as interests.

Please save the date for both Friday, September 27 beginning in the mid-afternoon and all day Saturday, September 28 for this very important gathering. Registration will be open soon.
